Amazon Prime Video announced today the slate of films that will be available exclusively to Prime members. The slate includes a mix of new and classic titles from distinctive voices in film, television, and music.
Amazon Prime has a new slate of films coming soon. The blumhouse movies 2020 is a series of horror films that will be released in the year 2020.
Blumhouse Productions teamed up with Amazon Prime Video to distribute four brand-new horror flicks just in time for Halloween last year, and the “Welcome to the Blumhouse” program is set to continue this autumn with four new experiences. The four flicks, Bingo abyss, As dark as the night, Madres, and The Manor, will all feature fresh and rising talent while maintaining Blumhouse’s trademark brand of horror, guaranteeing that audiences will be terrified for a few weeks. On October 1st, Bingo Hell and Black as Night will premiere, followed by Madres and The Manor on October 8th.
The following is a synopsis of the films:
- In Bingo Hell, a wickedly creative horror film with a fiendishly hilarious twist, a spunky elderly person attempts to stop a malevolent figure from threatening the inhabitants of a low-income neighborhood. When Lupita (Adriana Barraza), a 60-year-old neighborhood activist, learns that her beloved local bingo hall has been taken over by a mystery businessman called Mr. Big (Richard Brake), she rallies her elderly neighbors to fight back. But when Lupita’s old neighbors start showing up dead in bizarre circumstances, she realizes that gentrification is the least of her worries. Something terrible has taken up residence in Oak Springs’ peaceful barrio, and with each fresh scream of “Bingo!” another victim succumbs to its heinous presence. Lupita must confront the terrifying reality that this game is really winner-take-all as the monetary rewards and corpse count rapidly climb.

Black as Night
- In Black as Night, an action-horror hybrid with a strong social conscience and a cutting sense of humour, a clever adolescent girl leaves childhood behind as she fights a gang of dangerous vampires. 15 years after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on New Orleans, a new danger emerges in the shape of puncture wounds on the necks of the city’s most vulnerable displaced residents. Shawna (Asjha Cooper), 15, swears to balance the score after her drug-addicted mother becomes the next zombie victim. Shawna devises a daring plot with three close pals to enter the vampire’s home in the historic French Quarter, kill their master, and revert his fanged followers to human form. But murdering monsters isn’t simple, and Shawna and her crew quickly find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old battle between rival vampire clans, each vying for control of New Orleans.

Strange events and horrific images persuade Judith that a malevolent spirit is haunting the vast estate, despite the best efforts of the staff and a developing relationship with fellow senior Roland (Bruce Davidson). Judith’s desperate warnings are disregarded as fiction as people begin to die suddenly. Even her adoring grandson Josh (Nicholas Alexander) believes her fears are caused by dementia rather than demons. With no one ready to believe her, Judith must either flee the mansion or become a victim of the evil that resides within.
